14/10/16 - The Earl & The 3 Hannahs
Our 3 Hannahs (Hannah Calvin, Hannah Gibson and Hannah Hughes) from Year 12 recently had the opportunity to meet with the Earl of Wessex in Hillsborough. The girls were representing Newtownhamilton Young Farmers and were invited to meet their royal host on behalf of the Grassroots Challenge Programme with Ulster Wildlife. They joined with other young people from Northern Ireland (including former Newtownhamilton High pupil Jason Clarke) to plant wildflowers in the beautiful grounds of Hillsborough Castle.
The girls also spoke to the Earl about the Duke of Edinburgh Award Programme and explained that they had completed their bronze and silver awards with Newtownhamilton High and that they were now starting their gold award with the Young Farmers.
Well done girls.
